Take a look at this remote garden hideaway. Now imagine that it’s on a property hidden amongst the lush green ivy bushes. Further imagine you’re a writer and this is your private writer’s studio. This detached porch is just that and more. We can’t take credit for the theme’s idea but we played a big part in making it come to life.
The homeowner wanted to build a holly and berry themed writer’s studio that she would call Holly House. She envisioned a holly lined walkway with every last detail of Holly House communicating this beloved and timeless theme. The custom porches we build always start with the homeowners’ vision, goals, and dreams. Adding a screened porch to your home and property fulfills a dream of having an indoor/outdoor space. It’s your place to feel the breeze and listen to the sounds of nature like singing birds and tricking water. It’s your place to read, relax, and hide away. It’s your place for stolen moments alone or with love ones and dear cherished friends. It’s YOUR space. With your vision and our 20 plus years expertise in building screened porches, we can bring an idea to life.
This homeowner wanted an allée lined with holly bushes. She wanted a boardwalk signaling the entry into a serene private world for her writer’s paradise. Imagine traversing this boardwalk and entering this private world. Get ready to come inside.
The holly and berry theme is masterfully continued inside with her meaningful minimalist decorating and with the integrated theme elements throughout.
The picture below is her writer’s desk. Simple. Clean. Devoid of clutter. A writer’s nirvana.
A theme well played is subtly, effortlessly, and deftly communicated. Let’s take a look. In the picture above, you’ll see small red knobs on the shelves contrasting with the stained green bead board.
In the picture above, you’ll note the same red knobs along the posts and header rails. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the brackets on the corner are also carved subtly into the shape of holly leaves. Returning to the grounds, you’ll note the holly and berry themed railing with continued adorable small red knobs.
Furthering your journey and returning to the lush grounds, the boardwalk is a transport, a gateway, and a magic and meaningful divide.
